On Saturday Oct 5 we attended the trade show at the Gibralter Room. It was a very successful and well organized event.
Lakers members donated to Canadian Tire's Jump Start Program. Brad O'Neill accepts a cheque for $750 from car club president Phil Tanner. Canadian Tire matches all money raised during the show and all funds remain in the community.
We received dozens of gift donations from Williams Lake businesses which we used to raise money for the show. Also many cash sponsor ships that we use for prizes and trophies. Throughout the year we make several donations to local charities that are mainly directed at local youth. One example is our bursaries for two deserving grads.
Please take note of our sponsors and support their business.
Thanks to Gilbert and everyone at Spectra Power Sports for a great day at their 1st Annual Broadway Block Party.

Club member Wayne Potter and his wife Jackie attended the
Cataline Elementry School's Intergeneraional Dinner. The dinner celebrates the program that teacher Steve Dickens runs in partnership with the Williams Lake Seniors Village. The students spend seven weeks of the school year at the Village immersing themselves in their education, relationship building and service. The Lakers Car Club proudly donated $500 towards the program's scholarship fund.

In Dec 2018 we donated $2000 which was raised by raffling a full size wooden car built by Chris Knight, seen here handing the cheque to Tamara Robinson of the SA.
